GALLOPING TO GLOAT

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

PAGE 13 loves noth­ing more than a turf war with that other state.

This week Mel­bourne again proved we are all class. Just ask Rac­ing Min­is­ter MARTIN PAKULA, who al­most gal­loped to the podium to help launch the Stella Ar­tois Caulfield Cup Car­ni­val at the Stoke­house.

The min­is­ter an­nounced a $33 mil­lion pack­age for Vic­to­rian rac­ing if the An­drews Gov­ern­ment wins next month’s elec­tion.

He gave an em­phatic speech, de­nounc­ing the dodgy be­hav­iour in the Har­bour City around the Ever­est race se­ries.

“We are very lucky in Vic­to­ria that we have a rac­ing in­dus­try that would never al­low it­self to be associated with be­hav­iour of that na­ture,” he said.
